Edit Dynamic Documents from Windchill WebClient without ArborText

My team is evaluating WindChill in a sandbox environment and we also have ArborText 7 with Styler installed.  The use case we are looking at is for a user who has access to the WindChill sandbox, but does not have ArborText installed.  These would be people who have experience hand-editing DITA xml as well as for other DTDs.  

Here are the steps that what we would like to do:

 

  1. Download a dynamic document as ASCII text without the using Arbortext as a proxy.  We want to just download the text and open in a free text editor (e.g. notepad or notepadd++).   
  2. Edit the document using the free text editor.
  3. Upload the edited document as a new version of the original dynamic document we downloaded on step 1.

This is something that is quite straightforward to do in a tool like SharePoint, but there is no obvious way in Windchill.  Is it even possible to do what I am asking?
